Cherry-almond spinning

Spinning day today, at P’s. The cake was cherry and almond. I like spinning at P’s. I have discovered that, if I sit on her sofa, it’s very comfortable for my bad arm and it doesn’t aggravate it, even if I spin all morning – so the BFL is progressing. Painful slow progress, to be sure. But I am halfway through it now, more or less, and looking forward to the knitting of it when it is done.

I made arrangements to do some rainbow dyeing with M, as she missed the session that we did before – though we didn’t actually fix a date when we might do it, we do have to to look forward to.

Next week’s spinning is at one of the island’s accommodation providers. We are going to talk about course provision, and eat chocolate cake.

It’s good, this spinning lark, is it not?

I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

On our way again. Not far to go and no check in until 2pm so a late and lazy start to our day. I have been watching eagles. Not sure what we are going to be doing for the next few days. We want to take Nell to a vet and the outcome of that… Continue reading October 18, 2020 at 01:22PM
